San Cristobal de la Habana El Morro

San Cristobal de la Habana isn't the type of cigar that tourists typically request on a trip to Cuba. Overshadowed by the famous Cuban brands such as Cohiba, Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta, San Cristobal is known only to more learned cigar smokers. The brand—named after Christopher Columbus—was created in 1999, and was originally intended to be a low-end brand made with tobacco from the Remedios region. The cigar was changed, and is made from Cuba's premium leaf, which is evident in the performance of the dark and rich El Morro, the largest of the four-sized line. The 7 1/8-inch, 49-ring Churchill brims with dark, earthy flavors, and the brand is small enough to be made in only one factory, La Corona in Havana.
